Brute Force Doesn’t Work

Underneath the grey clouds, the city looked like it’d been covered by a thin veil.

At the international arrival terminal of Zhonghai International Airport, a man in a white shirt was seen standing around the lobby without any baggage on him.

He was Yang Chen, who’d just rushed back to Zhonghai. Christen was careful with her preparations. Her contacts had made him a new ‘fake’ passport and flown him back to China within a few hours.

Due to the weather, it was already half past seven when his plane had touched down on the runway. He was rushing to get back, worried that Zhenxiu might have already entered the examination hall.

Yang Chen was extremely cautious when it came to all things lightning.

Although he knew the weather didn’t have anything to do with him, he still decided to lay low. Would the heavens really wait patiently for him to exert his powers and strike him once again?

When he recalled the fight with Poseidon, he’d stupidly ignored the warning against unleashing all his powers.

During the fight, he thought that if he was not killed by his opponent, the lightning would have killed him regardless. How could he protect his women at home like that?

Without him as a shield, everyone he loved would have been killed a long time ago. Yang Chen steeled himself. He had to be careful in the future. He swore to only use his powers in situations of emergency. This would not be easy if he was faced with a skilled opponent. Even if it was in his favor, he might attract the heavenly tribulations once again. Who was going to protect him then?

Part of his fears stemmed from the fact that he did not have a mentor to guide him. Now, even if the first round of Taiqing Heavenly Lightning had passed, the second Shang Qing strike was only a matter of time. Theoretically, with his speed of advancements, he shouldn’t have to face the rest of the tribulations in this lifetime.

This was a world lacking advanced cultivators. The number of people who could advise Yang Chen was close to zero. That itself made Yang Chen fear the unknown even more.

Yang Chen got a cab at the airport and rushed home. Along the way, Yang Chen kept glancing at the time. There had been a massive jam, possibly due to the examinations.

With all the delays, it was already a quarter past eight when he pulled up at his home.

Yang Chen didn’t have any Chinese currency on him to pay so he had the driver wait at the gates. Guo Xuehua was on her way down while Wang Ma was washing up in the kitchen.

Guo Xuehua’s face lit up when she saw her son. “Ah, you child. Why didn’t you tell us you were coming back? We’ve kept all the things for breakfast.”

Yang Chen didn’t care for breakfast. “Mom, has Zhenxiu left for her exams?”

She rolled her eyes. “Of course, I thought you’d forgotten about the child. Ruoxi just left to send her off.”

Slapping his forehead in frustration, Yang Chen mumbled, “Mom, the cab driver is still waiting outside for my payment. Help me pay him, I’ll go upstairs to get my phone. I need to at least call them.”

At this moment, Wang Ma walked out of the kitchen with her rubber gloves on. Surprised, she said, “Young Master, you’re back! Sigh, why didn’t you call beforehand? Zhenxiu was sad the whole night.”

Yang Chen smiled bitterly. He could imagine her looking very disappointed. It was he who had brought her to school during her final revision days but at the most important moment, he wasn’t by her side.

Without a word, he hurried upstairs.

Guo Xuehua shook her head and sighed. “This child. He didn’t even greet his elders upon entering the house but only asked his mother to pay for his ride.”

Although she was complaining, her tone was still a loving one. To Guo Xuehua, she would be glad to receive more requests from Yang Chen to make up for her failed motherhood when he was young.

When Yang Chen arrived in his room, he took his phone out only to realize it had run out of battery.

He rushed to plug the phone in. He’d never taken notice of Lin Ruoxi’s phone number, so he had to search for it in his call history.

But when it turned on, Yang Chen stared with his mouth open to see tens of missed calls from Mo Qianni!
